Show Notes

“We do NOT have to do it all, and it took me a really long time to realise that… there are people out there who can help you with your business, with small, recurring projects or a couple of hours a week.”

—  Julie Greenham

Do you wear all of the hats in your business?

It’s common for entrepreneurs, especially during the start-up phase, to take on multiple roles in their businesses, from sales to operations to marketing to administration. An entrepreneur is often a CEO, website designer, podcast editor, copywriter, executive assistant, and graphic designer, all rolled into one!

While it may seem more cost-effective to take on all of the work yourself, it can lead to exhaustion, overwhelm… and eventual burnout.

I myself took on all of these roles in my business for six years. I felt discouraged, tired, and unmotivated, which made it challenging to do the work that I actually loved doing. Once you’ve spread yourself too thin, your business WILL suffer. 

The good news? You do NOT have to do it all. And you shouldn’t!

So many of us delay hiring or outsourcing, believing that we need to make a lot more money before it makes sense to build a team. 

But outsourcing recurring and administrative tasks frees you up to work in your zone of genius and do the things that create the most value for your business — which actually boosts your revenue!

If you’re ready to learn how to delegate your way to new levels of success, press play — it all starts right now.

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • Why hiring a team doesn’t necessarily mean bringing people on full-time — and how just 1-2 hours a week can make a huge difference 
  • Why you need to learn how to give up control and trust others to own their tasks in order to grow and scale your business
  • How finally outsourcing my recurring tasks led me to a surprising discovery!
